Tajinder Bagga throws a challenge, says if Derek O Brien can prove he was anywhere near the spot of violence, he will quit politics

Today, TMC's Derek O'Brien convened a presser to attack the BJP, claiming that the bust of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar was vandalised by BJP workers.

BJP spokesperson Tajinder Bagga who was detained by the West Bengal police after a clash erupted between BJP and TMC workers has issued a challenge to TMC leader Derek O’Brien on the latter’s unfounded allegations. In a recently concluded press conference, Derek O’Brien had defended his government’s move to arrest Tajinder Bagga claiming that the BJP is getting outsiders in West Bengal and these outsiders are responsible for the ensuing violence on the streets in Kolkata.

Tajinder Bagga had issued a challenge to Derek O-Brien to prove his involvement in the ongoing violence in West Bengal. Bagga has claimed that if Derek successfully proves that he was within 500 metres of the spot when the violence broke out, he will quit the politics. However, he also said that if Derek can’t prove his charges, he should leave the politics.

As 9 Lok Sabha seats of West Bengal go to polls this Sunday in the last phase of the elections, Kolkata streets yesterday were marked by violence that broke out between TMC and BJP supporters in the election roadshow of BJP president Amit Shah. Amit Shah’s roadshow received a massive reception as a large number of people gathered to participate in his roadshow. Towards the end of the roadshow, violence broke out between TMC and BJP supporters. Since then both parties have been pinning the blame of the violence on each other.

Today, TMC’s Derek O’Brien convened a presser to attack the BJP, claiming that the bust of Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar was vandalised by BJP workers. However, according to the screenshot of a Facebook post by one Biraj Narayan Roy that has gone viral, the incident was orchestrated by Trinamool itself. Roy, who claims to be a student of the University and an eyewitness, calls it disgusting politics and blames Trinamool for the entire mess. He claims it was virtually impossible for the BJP Karyakartas to reach the place where the Status was. He says it was smashed by Trinamool itself, then the media was summoned and the BJP blamed through it.

Earlier, Mamata Banerjee had threatened BJP that she is capable of usurping the BJP headquarters in 1 second and that they should thank their good fortune that she is sitting ‘silently’ now.
